10 To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear? behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot listen: behold, the word of the LORD is to them a reproach; they have no delight in it
13 For from the least of them even to the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even to the priest every one deals falsely.
14 They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.
15 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? no, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, said the LORD.
16 Thus said the LORD, Stand you in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and you shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.
A picture of a wayward nation that is driven with covetousness, greed and deception. Fooling themselves in striving after a false "peace"... committing abominations without any conscience or shame ... and when confronted with God's direction and commandments to follow ... a reply of defiant rejection.
Lets continue to pray for the repentance of our nation and petition for God's continued grace and thank Him for His long suffering and mercy towards us.
